Halti is the highest peak in Finland. The terrain is made up of large rocks with no earth visible. The nearest road is about 35 km away, so the trek to the summit and back usually takes a few days.
There are quite many huts on the way and helicopter and seaplane transport are available. The trek up to the base of Halti is very wet, so hiking shoes are no good. Instead, rubber boots are highly recommended. Lots of mosquitoes during the summer.
Thanks to Janne Lepp?nen for this description.
